  • Tagine


  • 2-3 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 Onion
  • 2 Potatoes
  • 2 Carrots
  • 1 bulb Garlic
  • 1 cup Olives
  • 2 tbsp Almonds
  • 10 Prunes
  • 1 Pepper
  • 1 Lemon
  • 1 tsp Cumin Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Coriander Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Chilli Powder
  • 1/2 cup Water


  • Put a layer of olive oil in the base of the tagine.
  • Cut up enough onions to cover the base. Don’t cut the onions too finely, nice and chunky is good!
  • Cover onions in good amount of Cumin.
  • Cover the onions with some potatoes, keep them a good size unless you want to cook the tagine as quickly as possible in which case cut them up into small pieces. Add some more olive oil.
  • Take a bulb of garlic and separate all the cloves and place them around the outside of the potatoes.
  • In the middle of the tagine make a pile of first olives then prunes and then almonds.
  • Sprinkle some chilli powder over the fruit and nuts.
  • Cut carrots into sticks and lean them up against your pile of fruit and nuts to create what looks a bit like a teepee.
  • Place slices of pepper around the carrots. Add some more olive oil.
  • Sprinkle the lot with Coriander powder.
  • Take a whole lemon and cut into quarters and place on top of your ingredients. Cover with more cumin powder.
  • Add some water, not too much! People often add too much water, we prefer more oil, less water. Half a cup full for a small to medium tagine and three quarters of a cup for a large tagine should be plenty.
  • You should have piled your ingredients up so as it fits inside the conical lid of the tajine.
  • Put the lid on and cook on the coals of an open fire or gas burner for around three quarters of an hour on gas but up to a couple of hours on coals. Test potatoes and carrots during cooking with a sharp knife to know when they are soft enough to eat.
